BOMAG compact rubber tyred rollers
Also new from BOMAG are compact rubber tyred rollers for the 4.5-11tonne market. The new BW 11 RH-5 models are articulated and feature hydrostatic drives and suit use in compacting chippings on surface dressing. The central positioning of the articulated joint is said to allow the four rear wheels to roll in the gaps between the five front wheels even when driving round bends. The result is perfect compaction and smooth and even surface quality. Also the roller excels on sites where space is limited due to its turning radius of just 2.7m. The fully hydrostatically driven BW 11 RH-5s feature three travel ranges: in first gear the drive allows maximum gradeability.
The machines have a new operator platform that benefits from single drum roller design. Meanwhile power comes from a Kubota diesel that meets Tier 4 requirement while in addition to the hydrostatic braking function, these models are equipped with a dynamic service brake. Other features include ease of servicing due to maintenance-free joints.
